The Senior Program at CPACS provides a range of services that is aimed at maximizing independence and the quality of life for the Asian American senior adult population in the state of Georgia. Our holistic approach provides services and programs to seniors by promoting health and nutrition, financial, social, and recreational wellbeing.
Benefits & Assistance
CPACS serves as information and referral agency for issues regarding health, housing, medical, and financial services available to the Asian American community.
CPACS provides information and assistance (including interpretation and translation) in various languages. Clients receive assistance on senior housing, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security benefits, food stamps, energy assistance, and any senior-related information.
Senior Wellness Adult Day program
CPACS’s Senior Wellness Adult Day program aims to provide Asian seniors with:
- Increased opportunities to gather for fellowship and learning in a social environment setting, and
- Increased knowledge of health issues to help prevent illness.
Currently, we offer weekly or bi-monthly group services for Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Bhutanese seniors.
CPACS’s homemaker service offers in-home personal support for Asian seniors and disabled adults. Trained homemakers provide a broad range of assistance including interpretation, routine household tasks and budgeting, aid with personal care, shopping, and transportation to physician visits.
CPACS received funding from HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) to develop the first senior housing complex for Asian Americans in Georgia, the second of its type in the nation. As a response to the growing demand for senior housing in recent years, Rainbow Heights, a 53-unit housing complex, opened in January of 2007.
